About the event
On this 10k running tour, as we jog through the back-alleys of East London, you'll be transported back to Victorian London at the time of the Whitechapel Murders.
Our tour begins by running you through the tragic events of 1888 and the surrounding social history: the victims, the police, the press and the conditions for East Londoners. But we'll also have time to explore a number of theories of that age-old question - Who Was Jack the Ripper?
